By 2006, Scott Storch was positioned to take over the hip-hop club scene. Unfortunately, his cocaine habit was starting to catch up with him, leading him to awful choices like dating Paris Hilton and producing her debut album.
He worked repeatedly with Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, Lil Kim, and T. In August 2006, Storch took what was planned to be a month-long vacation in Hollywood.
But he’s actually been on the national scene since 1991, when he joined up with The Roots to become their first keyboard player.
Storch was born in Florida in 1973, into a musical family.
A couple weeks after entering rehab, Storch declared bankruptcy. He did several radio appearances where spoke candidly of his financial troubles and was quite honest about the difficulties he was facing in repairing his career.
